The Government will provide $3.8 million over four years to enhance and expand the Higher Education Information Management System (HEIMS).

The enhancements implement the Government's response to several recommendations of the 2012 Review of Reporting Requirements for Universities and will establish a single national higher education data collection and information repository. The expanded information management system will improve access to data, under appropriate protocol and privacy provisions, for universities and other higher education providers.

The enhancement of HEIMS will support the Government's objective of reducing red tape in the higher education sector.
